Old Age Security and Intergenerational Transfer of Family Farms

Old farmers often stay with their children on the farm and share its income while the succeeding family receives the farm together with the obligation to care for the parents in their retirement. Using an intrafamily insurance framework for old age security and a bargaining game to formulate the intergenerational contract, we offer assessments of the value of farm transfer in a cooperative village in Israel, both to the granting parents and to the receiving young family.
